Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Bromopsis ramosa - Hairy-brome

Hairy-brome is rare and localised even in East Cornwall where it can be found on damp soils in woodlands and shady roadside hedges along the Tamar valley such as at Kingsmill (SX46F) and Tamartown (SX39F). It may also be found along the Camel Trail, inland from Wadebridge (SX07A), and in woods in north east Cornwall.
